Gardeners- Plots need to be cleared of all plants and hard good materials by Nov 1st. Clean up fees will be applied after Nov 1st.

Gardeners who have renewed for next year can keep cool weather crops in their plots for winter harvest.

Now is a great time to put compost on your garden bed and turn the soil to prepare for Spring planting!!

All plant materials put into the compost pile.  Unwanted cages, stakes etc. go into the dumpster behind the building.
